Hi, I am interesting in very speciphic theme. I will try to sell my games in my site (via Paypal). As a consumer I know how unpleasant is to wait for responce from the owner/publisher/developer. How do people sell their games (and other products) so when the consumer hits "buy" the process is started?
Maybe it has simple solution but I don't have an idea. Is there some automation solution or I will have to check every hour 24 hours per day is there anybody who paid for the game and I have to send to him the unlock code?
I am interesting in somekind of solutions where software or some other 3rd company will do that instead of me. Just can't imagine staying 24 in home infront the PC (well actually I am doing it now).

Most payment solutions have a notification interface that accesses your website. Your server script receives status codes and when the payment was successful you it can send the user an email or display the code to them.
